Alex Thomas and Friends Stop-Motion Animation Workshops

Alex Thomas and Friends offers several different Stop-Motion Animation Workshops for participants of all ages! In our workshops, participants will learn different animation styles and techniques through the art of stop motion animation, from a professional stop-motion animator who worked on films and Cartoon Network shows. Students will explore techniques such as onion skinning, rotoscoping, lip sync, looping, weight, speed, timing, intervals, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to build their very own custom, stop-motion puppet and bring it to life using the art, and the magic of stop-motion animation. Every workshop includes a free DVD of all the animation for each participant.
